Pro GRT # 3 – Plattekill, NY

Photos: Mike Lord & Six3Events

KHS was an early arrival for stop # 3 of the Pro GRT  Gravity Tour in Roxbury, NY. We hit the driving range…

and played a little “ping pong”.

Our good friends Laszlo and his “crew”  (from  PLATTEKILL Bike Park), showered us with the “FINEST” treatment,  from shuttling us to feeding us…THANKS so much guys!! 

Besides having access to a Pro Bike Wash, we had full use of a local bike shop.

A special thanks goes out to Chris Nolan of Plattekill Bike Park,  for allowing us access to their bike shop … YOU GUYS ROCK!

We discussed lines one more time before qualifying, and then it was time to do the work.

I had a solid qualifier. making sure to hit all my lines clean – I ended up 19th on the seeding list.

Binggeli had a fast qualifying run holding down 6th Place.

Aiello too had a fast qualifier (even with a small mishap) and ended up 10th.

Keeping our machines clean and dialed between qualifying and racing is imperative.

If you don’t have a Clean Well tuned machine, your chances of winning are significantly sabotaged.

My race run was pretty similar to my qualifier. I managed to shave 3 seconds off my qualifying time, (which was my goal for the race run). 

Binggeli’s race run was strong,  good enough for 7th place and a very important top 10 finish.

Aiello’s race run went way better than his qualifier… he SNATCHED up the 5th spot on the podium on the day!

The trip took a turn for the better when Aiello hit the wood for KHS Factory Racing!! – ON THE WOOD IS GOOD!!

Say good-bye to good friends and it’s off to Italy for the 2nd World Cup on the UCI DHI Tour.

Please stay tuned for more updates as they become available.

All the best,
Q.

Justin Williams Wins Again! Barry Wolfe Grand Prix Report

Sunday May 27th the CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team raced the 21st Annual Barry Wolfe Grand Prix in Westlake, CA. The event was held at a new location this year. A flat and fast 4 corner course that reached just under 1 mile in length. The start being late in the day, the wind had picked up significantly compared to earlier events. “The new Barry Wolfe course was crazy cool. Really fast, nice and open. Which made it very I safe. I love the overhead banner across the finish line, it made it feel pro. The organizers did a great job with the event.” Stated eventual winner Justin Williams.

With 7 riders in the field, CashCall was on the move early on setting temp and creating attacks. Pictured here David Santos, Brian McCulloch and Lee Muse, who were all active through out the race and getting Justin into position for the final sprint.

Michael Weicht had a great ride! He and one other rider, Rudy Napolitano were in a two-man break until 2 laps to go. They had upwards of 25 seconds on the peloton until the Monster Media team decided to put all their horse power on the front and steadily reel them in. With 6 CashCall riders in wait in the bunch, the team was ready to set sprinter Williams up.

The long headwind finish proved to be no match for Williams sprint as he was able to pedal to victory once again.

When asked to recount his win, Williams points to his teammates and their hard work that makes the results a reality. “It’s always nice to win a race, especially when the field is as stacked and packed as Sunday’s. The team rode hard and we thought we had it locked up with Michael up the the road in the final 10 minutes. However, the field never stopped chasing. We got together and made it happen. Brian had a crazy lead-out down the back straight and Santos really made it happen into the last corner.”

Winning the day after his birthday was the icing on the cake! Happy birthday Justin, and congratulations to the entire team on another win!
